Bike Tour Rhine – Hirzel – Linth
This cycling tour leads in three stages from the medieval village of Kaiserstuhl though Zurich and on to Ziegelbrücke. The route first follows the Fisibach river through the peaceful Bachsertal valley.
After a short breather at the Katzensee lake, cyclists get to experience the bustling business metropolis of Zurich at close quarters.
Afterwards, on the climb up the Zimmerberg the going gets easier, with occasional glimpses of Lake Zurich. In the moraine landscape between Hirzel and Samstagern, drumlins, marshy hollows and picturesque farms lie along the path to Pfäffikon. After a short detour via the Obersee, the landscape becomes flatter. At the end of the lake is the corrected course of the Linth Canal and a breathtaking view of the Alps.
